Consultation Process

Development of the UBC RDM Strategy, including the RISE self-assessment, involved extensive consultation with stakeholders from all of UBC, from all campuses, system-wide.

Consultations related to the initial self-assessment based on the RISE model were primarily conducted in 2021 and included a virtual town hall and four focus-sessions, themed around different areas of interest. The RISE self-assessment was completed based on the community feedback at these and other discussions (see below).

Consultations related to the development of the draft RDM Strategy were primarily conducted in 2022 and included hybrid town halls based on the UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan campuses as well as four virtual town halls.

In addition to the town halls and focus sessions other project members joined other existing meetings (see below) and communications were sent via multiple channels to encourage feedback via a web form.
